In quantum mechanics, physicists study tiny single particles –photons, electrons – and usually only a small number of them at a time. Sometimes, these particles behave like waves which gives them...

Simulating the behavior of a single particle can be quite a challenging task in physics; after all, it is microscopic and we usually cannot watch in real time. It becomes even more complicated when...

Paths on the Lattice
23 Oct 2014
Chandrashekar used lattices such as these to move a particle step by step. Some lattices contained missing connections, creating gaps where the particle cannot travel.

While some languages are more difficult to translate than others, the hardest by far is mathematics. And if there's a dialect of math that boggles more minds than any other, it’s the complex...

Quantum Coherence in a Bose-Einstein Condensate
22 Jan 2013
Many-particle quantum coherence is a phenomenon where two or more particles take on the form of a wave and combine to act as one large wave. A Bose–Einstein condensate (BEC) consists of a gas cooled...

The Superposition of an Atom
22 Jan 2013
Under quantum conditions a single atom can be in two places at once, i.e. in superposition with itself. These images show the superposition of an atom from two different perspectives. The red smears...

The Double-Slit Experiment
22 Jan 2013
By shooting an electron at a wall with two slits positioned in front of a screen, physicists found that matter can exhibit the characteristics of a wave in one case and a particle in another. If the...
